Badge of the Month: December 2022

The end of the year is near so we wanted to take a moment to reflect on 2022, both professionally and personally.

There's no doubt the last years have been trying, but it's important to consider the good as well as the bad. Here are some questions to help you reflect: How was 2022 for you? What went well? What was your favorite memory? Did you learn something new or develop a new skill? However big or small, I'd love to hear something about your 2022 and what made it special.

    Hey @Andres D'Andrea,

    It sounds like you've had a tough year. Congratulations on your professional success and I'm very sorry to hear about your grandparents. It's important to learn the valuable lesson of taking the time for what matters! Since moving back to the UK, I've also tried to spend more time with those I care most about. I've learned (and felt) what it means to spend quality time with someone vs just spending time with them/ being around them. I guess this is something we should all take the time to consider.

    I wish you and your family all the best!!

    Thanks @Miša, there's indeed a big difference between spending quality time and just being around those one care about.

    What a great thread we have here! Let me join in with some thoughts on 2022 from my perspective. :)

    From a professional standpoint, I got to meet lots of our awesome customers and I had the chance to improve and broaden my skill set as well. I also got to share some amazing workshops and in-person training days with my lovely co-workers at Meister.

    In my personal life, I could maintain the work-life balance by focusing on my mental and physical health with a nice routine. I also just hit a PR in my deadlift!

    Hi everyone, it's lovely to meet all of you here!

    I took a leap of faith this year and decided to become a self-employed consultant. Therefore, 2022 was mostly focused on work, with a lot of highs and lows.

    One of the highlights of the year was being able to travel to different countries for work. I enjoyed visiting new places and experiencing different cultures. I was able to build up my customer base and form genuine relationships with my clients.

    However, the year also had its challenges. The difficult global situation continued to have an impact on the economy and my professional work, with some projects being delayed. I believe, we all need to remain resilient in the upcoming year and just try to make the best out of the situation we are currently in.

    Overall, the year 2022 was a year of both growth and struggle, but I am extremely grateful for the experiences and lessons learned.

    I had a wonderful year - was great to be back to a year of in-person teaching after a dismal few years. Met a lot of brilliant minds! ☺️
